BBC HD - hello variable bit rate encoding, goodbye unhappy customers?

Whilst we on Virgin Media have enjoyed excellent picture quality on BBC HD of late, those on satellite have suffered an appalling loss of PQ. However, that should now be about to change. According to Tech Radar: "The BBC has launched a raft of picture quality improvements for BBC HD just weeks after campaigners took their complaints direct to the channel’s bosses. The changes include Variable Bit Rate encoding, a fix for mix/fade problems and a new approach to noise in pictures."
Details can be found on the BBC's latest blog post from Andy Quested.

So will Ms Nagler like to explain why technical modifications (aside from small updates needed regularly anyway) are needed on this scale - there is no problem with the service, right?
